Erica’s love for fitness started at a young age, playing many different sports growing up. After completing a Division 1 soccer career at Central Connecticut State University, she found that she missed competitive sports. A close friend suggested that she try CrossFit, and she was instantly hooked by the competitive and fun atmosphere.
Erica was already working in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, so it felt natural to begin coaching CrossFit after seeing such positive results from her own CrossFit workouts. Erica’s personal fitness has evolved over the years, and although she no longer has that extreme competitive drive, CrossFit is still her favorite way to exercise.
Erica believes fitness isn’t limited to the gym or the field, and should be paired with living an optimal lifestyle. This philosophy led her to found Life Meets Health, which is an integrative and holistic approach to health. It comes down to the pursuit of health and happiness and finding the connection between these two ideal states. Her mission is to empower others to reach their goals, and to become their best selves – to be and feel amazing. She believes achieving our greatest potential will lead us all to be a source of positive change in the world. For more information, check out: www.lifemeetshealth.com.
